Tasting notes for the Château Renard 2018 - Domaine Saint-Pierre

  • EYE: At first glance, this Jura Chardonnay presents a bright straw-yellow robe, revealing its youth and brilliance. The perfect clarity in the glass highlights the quality of this Arbois-designated wine.
  • NOSE: The delicate nose unveils a complex bouquet, combining fragrant notes of white flowers, ripe peach, and a subtle touch of almond. The aromatic expression evokes the Jura terroir, with an elegance that characterizes the wines of the estate.
  • MOUTH: A brisk attack that quickly gives way to a luscious texture. The fruity flavors unfold harmoniously, accompanied by a refreshing minerality. The persistent finish, marked by a slight woody note, imparts complexity and length to this Chardonnay.


In short: The Arbois "Château Renard" 2018 from Domaine Saint-Pierre boasts a luminous robe, a complex nose, and a palate that is both fresh and structured. Best enjoyed within the next 3 to 5 years to fully appreciate its potential. This Chardonnay will complement dishes such as seared scallops, herb-roasted chicken, goat cheese and leek tart, lobster salad, or mature cheeses such as Comté or Morbier.

Jura estate in the Arbois vineyard


The Domaine de Saint Pierre is the pride of Fabrice Dodane. This talented winemaker acquired the vineyards and the estate from his former employers, Hubert and Renaud Moyne, in 2012 (after he had been working with them since the late 1980's and just one year after it officially converted to organic viticulture, thanks to his advice). Fabrice's property is located in the Jura region, more precisely in the tiny commune of Mathenay (a village with barely 150 souls in total), not too far from Arbois.

Saint Pierre is a vineyard covering about 6 hectares, with vines growing in a soil mainly composed of a mixture of clay, limestone rocks, and gray marls. Fabrice cultivates several grape varieties here, including Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Savagnin, and Poulsard. Thanks to them, he produces wines that can be described as authentic and perfectly reflecting their local terroir.
